A little surprised at how few people thought the vendor they could buy from was important.  I guess in retrospect the "backed in on Kickstarter etc" option was a bit daft as that would usually include pre-ordering the game... I guess it depends how people understood the question!


Still plenty of time to vote people.  (Well, unless you happen to be reading this after March 2014 of course...)
